Be creative with today’s leadership development tip!
Creativity means admitting you don’t have all the answers, turning a problem upside down, relentlessly searching for alternatives, exposing your ideas to scrutiny and criticism, and trying something new. The first step is forgetting how you’ve handled problems in the past and accepting that you’ll encounter false starts and failures. Being creative means challenging yourself and your assumptions.
